  • EMBL-EBI: Introduction to ontologies

    4 November 2015

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    EMBL-EBI: Introduction to ontologies https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/embl-ebi-introduction-to-ontologies This workshop will give an introduction to the basic concepts of ontologies and how they are useful in biological applications. After a brief overview of some existing resources, we will focus on the Gene Ontology, annotations made using the Gene Ontology and tools leveraging those for biomedical discovery. Also note: This event is part of a series of short introductions focusing on EMBL-EBI resources. If you want to learn more about these separate training events, see the Related Courses section below.

The workshop will have three sections: * A brief, practical introduction to ontologies and semantics * Focus on Gene Ontology (GO), annotations made using GO and tools leveraging those annotations for biomedical discovery. * A practical exercise in annotating data with ontologies using EBI tools. A standard annotation exercise will be provided, but attendees are encouraged to bring examples of their own data for annotation, preferably in spreadsheet form.

  • Big Data and Cloud Computing

    1 June 2018

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Big Data and Cloud Computing https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/big-data-and-cloud-computing Recent advances in genomics, proteomics, imaging and other technologies, have resulted in data being generated at a faster rate than they can be meaningfully analysed. In this course we will show you how cloud computing can be used to meet the challenges of storage, management and analysis of big data. The first half of the course will introduce cloud infrastructure technologies. The second half will cover tools for collaborative working, resource management, and creation of workflows. The instructors will demonstrate how they are using cloud computing in their own research. N.B. If you sign up for this course, you will be automatically registered for an [AWS educate account](https://aws.amazon.com/education/awseducate/), which will provide you with sufficient AWS credits to complete the course exercises. If you decide to continue using cloud computing after the course, you will need to either purchase more credits or apply for a grant from programs like: [AWS Cloud Credits for Research](https://aws.amazon.com/research-credits/), [Microsoft Azure for Research](https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/academic-program/microsoft-azure-for-research/) or [Google Cloud Platform Education Grants](https://cloud.google.com/edu/).
